Al-Farouq Aminu sees 18 minutes off the bench in loss

Al-Farouq Aminu scored five points on 2-for-7 shooting with two rebounds, two steals, an assist and a three-pointer over 18 minutes as the Magic lost to the Raptors on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Unless there are some injuries, Aminu looks to be destined to have a lower-minute reserve role this season. The veteran forward is only worth owning in 14 team fantasy leagues and deeper.
